A summer-long series of sustainability films, panel discussions and lectures hosted by the UH Mānoa Outreach College kicks off on Wednesday, May 20 with a showing of the award-winning film Kilowatt Ours, followed by a discussion with “serial energy entrepreneur” Darren Kimura.
Kilowatt Ours: A Plan to Re-Energize America provides simple, practical, affordable solutions to America’s energy crisis and shows how we can save electricity, save money and make a difference for the planet.
Kimura, originally from Hilo, will share insights about some of the renewable energy technologies being explored in Hawaiʻi, local prospects for green jobs and simple changes that reduce energy consumption.
The event is part of the Sakamaki Extraordinary Lectures series that extends the intellectual resources of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa to the community.
